Hi Peter,
This was more a comment re Yahoo's and Google's honoring of structured 
data ;-) But a reference to GoodRelations in the vcard spec may be 
valuable for motivating broad audiences to produce rich company and 
product descriptions.

Something along the lines of "For more comprehensive descriptions of a 
business, its stores, or products, please consider the GoodRelations 
ontology, http://purl.org/goodrelations/."
